Another Citizens Bank of Maryland Robbery
Again, I inverted the negative video and uploaded it.
February 4, 1964
Bandits Waylay Three Employees At Shop Center
CAMP SPRINGS, Md. (AP)—
Two armed men in their midtwenties look $15,322 from the vault of a branch bank Tuesday
after waylaying and tying up three employes. In a matter of minutes, two tellers, Dorothy B. Rice, 36,
and David H. Bowers, 20, and the branch manager, Robert M. Sweeney Jr., 26, were met by
the gunmen at the door as they reported for work and were marched inside.
The bank, a branch of the Citizens Bank of Maryland, is in the Andrews Manor Shopping Center,
near Andrews Air Force Base.
Working quickly against the opening time of 9 a.m., the two white gunmen ordered the vault
opened, tied up the employes, helped themselves to the money and fled in what Prince Georges
County Police believe was a 1963 maroon Pontiac. The car, bearing Maryland license tags,
was found later in an apartment project area about a mile and a half away from the bank.
The gunmen were described as nicely dressed, one about 26, the other about 25.
"They were good - looking guys," said Mrs. Rice, wife of an Air Force master sergeant.
'They didn't have to do this. They could have gone into the movies.'
This was the fourth branch of the Citizens Bank of Maryland to be robbed in approximately
seven months. In January three masked men took $15,775 from the Silver Spring branch.
In November two men held up the District Heights branch and got away with $4,776.
In July the Oxon Hill branch was held up and $142,636 was taken. In the latter case,
most of the money was recovered later and 10 persons were arrested.
